I am thinking about getting laser eye surgery. Has anyone in Big Law gotten this done and would you recommend it? I am concerned that continuing to work in big law (ie constantly looking at screens and reading documents) after the procedure will cause my eyes to degrade faster and I will need glasses again.
You'd think I'd know this, being a BAH alum... 😬
For job postings on the BAH careers site that list a specific clearance in the requirements, are those a hard requirement or will BAH hire you and sponsor you for it if you're a great fit for everything but the clearance?
Mine went out of scope last year and I've been kicking myself for it ever since!
Does anyone else feel like women are harder to work with then men? Shouldn't we all try to work together instead of throwing each other under the bus?
And K-3 pull out teachers willing to share their schedule with me. Looking to redo mine in December and want to see how others do it!

Need game advice. Craving some horror, don’t feel like finishing Visage just yet (final chapter)… in the mood for good story, supernatural themes a plus, good gameplay & mechanics a plus… stuck between these decisions HELP!!
Alien Isolation (not sure I’m in the mood for the sci-fi genre atm), Song of Horror, Resident Evil 3 Remake (kinda leaning towards this but way too indecisive).
If you have a better suggestion I’m ALL ears

Folks! Almost 7 weeks. I have some pain on just one side of the pelvis. Some mild lower back pain on the same side. No other major preg symptoms except fatigue. Hcg levels have been increasing but very slowly. Have an ultrasound scheduled for tomorrow but freaking out if it could be ectopic! Any similar experiences ? TIA

Does any one else have students that consistently act like it is day one when you ask them a question? Like they have never heard of the topic that they just spent a week on?
Has anyone taken the Salesforce Integration Architecture Designer exam? What are some of the best resources to study for it?
Those who hire... do you care if someone has a custom designed/built folio vs say Squarespace? I’ve always built my own but wondering if it’s worth the hassle. This is for a designer, btw

Has anyone used Toptal for job hunting? Their process seems time consuming so I want to know if it's worth it. Time is limited in my current season of life. Spouse and I both work and we have 2 littles at home. I'm miserable and have stagnated at my job and need a change.

Fellow introverts...can I only advance in my career if I take on a leadership role? The thought of this terrifies me. My current boss hasn't exactly given me the confidence that would reassure me that I'm leadership material. He constantly questions my design choices, which I'm able to defend. It doesn't help that he always presents outdated ideas and throws UX out the window. I know that I know my stuff and keep up with best practices. I have 4+ years experience but am treated as entry level.
For those of you who work or have worked at a series D and beyond (or with ~250+ employees) high-growth B2B tech startup, where you and your team do both branding and marketing, I'm curious about:
1. Where your team sits within the org
2. How your team is structured
3. Your team's relationship with the product team
4. Biggest gap/pain point you are seeing
When chatting compensation plan after my first full year, can I negotiate more? If so, how? Stocks are great and all, but I want more out of my base pay. I’m at Amazon BTW.
What is a “staff” level role? This seems unique to the tech world. But what the heck does it mean? Is it above senior?
I recently made the jump from advertising agency designer to an in-house designer for a tech company… I just cannot believe how much more chill this new job is. I’d been in agency land for about 6 years and I’m just so happy I got to make the switch. My stress levels have plummeted. I didn’t realize how incredibly burnt out I was in Ad Land. Any other fellow former ad peeps now working in tech? What surprised you most about making the switch?

Interviewing for 4ish months now for a FED role. Always make it 2-3 rounds but never ending in an offer. I have a BFA in Web Design, but I wonder if it's worth returning to school for a Master's in Computer Science. I'm leery on bootcamps because they don't teach real world/practical use cases, at least the ones I've heard about. The firsthand(?) experience I have w/ a bootcamp grad, claims to be full stack but didn't know how to troubleshoot HTML/CSS, nor knew how to use Dev Tools/Inspector.
feeling uninspired and unfulfilled — thinking about going back to agency because I’m bored and not feeling challenged. am I an idiot for even considering leaving equity + bonus? is the grass always greener?
Who here moved from a large enterprise to a medium sized business? I just got presented with a compelling offer. I’m excited for less politics, but might be dealing with more ambiguity. Would love to hear anecdotes. Thanks
How do I make the jump from agency world to tech as a copywriter? Are there any major differences in the roles?
